Some marketing campaigns can be inspiring and motivating. Those for Santoor soap are in this category. If you have never heard of it I advise you to browse a few of their advertisements — they do a good job of motivating a women to take care of her appearance and limit the effects of aging on her skin.
Aging is a natural process for men and women alike. These days, even though they are getting older, people do not want to look older. In days gone by, people had less interest in their appearance, probably because they had less time and money to spend looking after it. Anti-aging is now big business and there is a wide range of treatments, methods and processes available, all of which are competing for market share.
Anti-aging is not at odds with being natural. It’s more about giving 100% attention to our self-confidence by using the products and treatments
available to limit the stresses on our bodies, especially our skin. Modern life with its technology and emphasis on career has become more serious than it was in earlier generations and consequently, our stress levels have increased. Practicing meditation and yoga are good ways to calm ourselves and reduce the stress in our lives. Manufacturers have brought to market different health-related products with names such as: Anti-aging miracle, Chocolate bars, Sandalwood cream, and Laser treatments, but how effective are these so-called natural treatments in making one more beautiful?
Suddenly old has become synonymous with old fashioned. People have started seeking new methods of arresting or reversing the aging process:
hair and anti-wrinkle treatments; and supplements and other products to reverse sugar diseases, and to improve the elasticity of the skin, for example. Some of these have unexpected and unpleasant side effects and yet, according to the surveys, every year the sales of creams and treatments are increasing. The experts agree that we have to protect our skin because of the environmental conditions in which we live. Air and water pollution and unprotected exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVA and UVB) all take a toll on the health of our skin. Failing to take care after yourself can lead to a loss of your external beauty that may also be harmful to the beauty that comes from within. Someone once said that if you ever feel that you are not happy with yourself, go ask a stranger how beautiful you are.
Living life well involves a lot more than using anti-aging treatments or other products to help you to look younger. The way to stay beautiful as you get older is to look at yourself every morning with confidence. With the right attitude it is possible to feel that you are more beautiful now than you were in the photographs from your youth.
